Information about Urgup
Urgup is a small town in the central region of Cappadocia, comfortable with a mix of traditional and modern lifestyles, and the hub for local villages. The people are comfortable with tourism but not dominated by it. For this reason it is a great place to stay if you want to get a feel for daily life outside of the big cities.
Urgup has been variously known as "Ossiana", "Bashisar", "Burgut Kalesi" and "Prokopi". In Ottoman times, it was the administrative center of the region before Nevsehir took over.
Until the 1924 exchange of populations there was a large Christian population in Urgup, and many of the old streets are full of old Greek houses.
Strolling around the old town, there are many attractive street views, and in autumn locals boil up tomato paste and pekmez (grape molasses), chop wood for winter, and dry squash seeds outside their homes.
